We shouldn't teach great books; we should teach a love of reading.
Education is what survives when what has been learned has been forgotten.
Many instructional arrangements seem "contrived," but there is nothing wrong with that. It is the teacher's function to contrive conditions under which students learn. It has always been the task of formal education to set up behavior which would prove useful or enjoyable later in a student's life.
That's all teaching is; arranging contingencies which bring changes in behavior.
Teachers must learn how to teach ... they need only to be taught more effective ways of teaching.
